that the roster for cpac has now increased. we had mit romney, sarah palin, rand paul, allen west, and wayne lapierre. now i'm sure we'll have one that will have you and dana definitely wanting to go hear the great orator, rick perry is going to speak. what do you think, angela? >> whoo! just kidding. first and foremost, we have to talk about what is going on with the gop. the gop has, i think, a three-fold problem. it's the message. it's the messengers and the audienced audience is the person people who don't care to hear what they're talking about, whether it's on cpac or fox or some other media outlet, the message isn't resonating in part because when you look at the changing dem graphics of this country, they have got to at some point start talking about social issues because folks vote wholistically. what is the candidate talking about that makes sense to me? how does it impact me? and then at some point we have to address the humanity of politics, compassion and concern for your neighbor. all of which for some reason the republican party is so distant from, it just doesn't make any sen
